Whoop 4 0 Review: Should you spend over $300 on its health tracking?

WHOOP’s patented Strain Coach™ technology tracks all forms of movement including steps, as well as resting heart rate, and estimates calorie expenditure. The WHOOP Strain Coaching feature allows users to objectively measure and optimize the intensity of their physical activity throughout the day and week, in order to meet their fitness, health, and performance goals. I enjoyed getting insight into my fitness, sleep, and recovery with Whoop, and thought the calculated scores accurately reflected my energy levels for the day.

Unfortunately, there appears to be a bug that prevents the HR sensor from turning off when you remove WHOOP from your wrist. So instead of trying to compare the WHOOP Strap to a particular Fitbit model, I decided to compare the underlying technologies.

Because the Whoop is constantly monitoring your Strain it gives a more accurate indication of how your daily activities contribute to needed recovery. Podcasts and articles discussing how you can measure it and what it can tell you. In a nutshell, HRV is the measurement of heart rate irregularity .

Apple Watch assumes your body is ready to go 100% each day. It never customizes its recommendations based on a tough workout from the previous day. Maybe Whoop can’t measure accurately due to something unique with my body. Although, The Quantified Scientist and Ali Spagnola on YouTube ran into the same issues as I did.
